KRC again hosted another very successful regatta over two days, with over 500 crews racing every 3-4 minutes for a total of 20 hours. The regatta was sponsored again this year by CNM Estates Ltd.
KRC squads were successful in several events. The Senior Men won the Open Diamond Jubilee Sprint 8's. Our junior squad had a strong entry of 25 boats, seeing 7 finals and 2 wins in the J16 2x and WJ15 1x. We also had wins in WMASA/B 2x, MAS F1x and a number of 2nd places.
A few lucky crews had their trophies presented by Sir Steve Redgrave CBE and Anna Watkins MBE who fitted a prize-giving into their filming with John Inverdale for the BBC's coverage of the Rowing World Cup from Lucerne. The regatta was pleased to welcome Lord Sterling of Plaistow, who commissioned the Queens Row Barge Gloriana. Gloriana was rowed downstream by volunteers from racing and was moored at the Gazebo landing stage for both days.
